Ave Maria Meditations

And one of the most beautiful books written about Mary, the Treatise on True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin, St. Louis de Montfort says: “God made Man found liberty in being enclosed in her womb; He showed His power by allowing Himself to be carried by her, young maiden that she was; He found glory, and His father found glory too, in hiding His splendor from all creatures of earth,  so as to reveal them to Mary alone.

He glorified His majesty and His independence by descending on the Virgin in His conception, His birth, His presentation in the temple, His hidden life of 30 years and even up to the time of His death where she was present.  He offered one only sacrifice in union with her,  and was immolated to the eternal Father with her consent. It is she who nourished and supported Him, who brought Him up and then sacrificed Him for us. Finally, Our Lord remains as much the Son of Mary in heaven as He was on earth.”

Our Lady found this unworthy lukewarm person and obtained for her the grace to enter the Third Order of the Franciscans of the Immaculate. May this person spend all eternity in showing her gratitude.
